What is the Development device ID for? It's under Settings - Developer options.
Does anybody else even have this?
Development Device ID
Every phone running ICS has one. Identity that uniquely identifies current device.
Device ID changes every time you wipe the phone to install a new ROM. It's sort of like Android_ID, but for development identification only to be used by a developer internally.
And every time you sign into Google music on your newly wiped phone it registers as a new device. after so many different flashes and roms you will get a notice that you have too many devices on your music account. when you sign into your music (form a computer) you will see all of your phone's from each time you've wiped and signed back in again. just remove the old ones.
Hope this Helps
